TPFC migrated to HTTPS

#1 Post by Andrew Lee » Fri Oct 28, 2016 9:06 pm

I have migrated TPFC to HTTPS using the free SSL cert service provided by the kind folks at Let's Encrypt.

Quite a bit of work was involved, and all the content that hard-coded HTTP as the protocol type had to be migrated to the protocol-less version if possible. This is to avoid the "mix-content" warning in browsers if not all content are served using HTTPS.

If you see anything wrong, please let me know. I hope my effort and our trouble are worth it for the extra security offered by HTTPS/SSL to all of us.

I confirm what SYSTEM reported above- logging in and logging out result in 404 - Page Not Found error.

  • FYI, I'm getting this warning in SeaMonkey in a few forum topics... :|

It's most likely caused by forum posts which embed images from HTTP origins. Andrew can't do anything about that.

Ditto here: (Garbled page after login / logout)
BTW, clicking on the top left TPFC logo does restore control to a clean page display mode....;-)

Fixed. Thanks for repoting!

Yeah, that's the right answer.

Not clear if the following anomaly is related or not to the recent HTTPS migration:

While browsing TPFC anonymously,
any attempt to step-up an app popularity (by clicking on "This app rocks!" button) fails to bring up the customary CAPTCHA verification applet.

Subsequent attempt to click the "Submit" button rightfully brings forth the following (red colored) error message:
"The verification code is incorrect! Please try again. (reCAPTCHA said: incorrect-captcha-sol)"
Anyone else observing this issue ?

Portable Freeware Update sub-forum shows No posts. I see this for the first time.

Edit
I confirm __philippe's finding.

Seems like there hasn't been any new post since Oct 29.

Anyway, I posted a test post in the 1by1 topic to check. The field was immediately updated.

Strangely, after I deleted my test post, the field didn't go back to "No post". Instead, it is now showing "Oct 29".

Anyway, looks like problem fixed.
